Crosby 3 Chime Whistle with Valve
For sale is a Crosby 3 chime whistle with
built in valve.
This whistle is in remarkable cosmetic
condition. I really like the antique look, but this could be
shined up to look like new. It also has a really nice chime,
sounds very woodsie. The built-in valve does leak a little on
air. I lapped the valve a little and it greatly improved it.
Lapping it a little more should solve the leak completely.
It is 12" High and about 3-1/2" Wide. It has a 3/4" threaded
Here is a clip to what it sounds like with about
125 psi of air pressure, sounds much better on steam. This was
taken in my garage, sorry about the echo and mic blaring:
If you want it all shined up, let me know
when you contact me to buy.
Lonergan 3 chime whistle. It was the noon
time steam whistle at a place called Fremont Incinerator. It was
removed in 1942.
Someone took a wire wheel to this to try
and clean up the finish, but they used much too corse of a
wheel. I was able to get most of the marks out. With a little
1000 and 2000 grit wet sanding, the rest of the scratches will
come out. Or keep as is. it shines very nicely now after a good
polish. There are a couple of divets from probably a pipe wrench
when it was originally removed (see photos).
It is 9-3/4" High and about 3-1/2" Wide. It
has a 3/4" threaded inlet. Here is a clip to what it sounds like
with about 125 psi of air pressure, sounds better on steam.
